   Soak dry beans in water to cover overnight; drain. Add
   2 quarts water; simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
   or until done. Drain, reserving 1 cup of cooking
   liquid; set aside. In large 3 quart Dutch oven or
   heavy kettle, melt suet.  Add onion; saute over medium
   heat until transparent. Add meat and brown, stirring
   often. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. of drippings; add
   seasonings, cocoa and chilies.  Cover; simmer for 1
   1/2 hours, stirring often.  Add tomato juice to keep
   chili to a medium consistency. If a thinner chili is
   desired, use reserved bean juice. To serve, add warm
   pinto beans to chili or serve as a side dish.  Add a
   dollop of sour cream on each bowl.  This is a spicy,
   meaty chili.
